About Me

My photo
I've been an artist my whole life and have had so many exciting art related jobs, which makes me kinda of a jack of a bunch of trades. I'm also college grad with a BFA and went to the High School of Performing & Visual Arts here in Houston. Visit my shop at Etsy and I promise you'll most likely receive a Smile to take with you! I decided to mention that about 10 years ago I was on chemo for 2 years. The chemo worked, but left me with other Heath issues, such as a case of Fibro which left me with having to get disability.Sad news, since I had a great career, that I can not work anymore. With my Faith and determination, I am determined to still do my art. My art gives me inspiration and thank you God! Oh, and please follow my blog! I'd love to have yall join me in my show and tells and also would love to hear what yall have to show and tell!:)

Happy New Year!!!

I'm so excited about the New Year because tonight a spectacular Fireworks will be displayed here in Houston, but of course I'll be watching it on tv. It was fabulous last year with every firework display choreographed and such a futuristic display with fabulous music for each display. I can't explain it, but I was very impressed.

Also I wanted to say to remember to eat your blackeyed peas and cabbage for good luck and money! I'll be fixing my peas with cornbread, and will try a new recipe for the cabbabe, with frying it all in olive oil. It will also have scallon onions and Turkey bacon. I don't eat red meat. Are yall going to stay up until midnight? I sure am going to try.

Also I wanted to tell yall that a new beautiful Christmasy video and article is up on www.Indiesmiles.com. Yall can go the the website because it's on the front page. It's really beautiful and I have it with an gorgeous Elvis song to boot! I hope yall will visit and make comments too! I love getting comments!

My Xmas money gift went to the cutest most awesome hat and scarf from
"Http://Stitches by Julie.Etsy.com! Yall must go check out her gorgeous items. The one I got is so unique!

Isn't it gorgeous!!! The scarf is to die for it' so unique and so cool! A wonderful affordable purchase! I Love it!

Kenzie and I wish yall the best New Year Ever!!!
